I’m looking for a children’s book (I think it was published in the 1960‘s) about a king who wanted everything in his castle arranged in groups – all the tables in one room, all the chairs in another, etc. Of course the results were disastrous – and funny. I don’t think King Grouper was the name of the book, but it may have been the King’s name. (Google search led me to books about fish!)
I’m looking for a book that I read quite some time ago. The most that I can remember is that the mother was a town outcast, had boy/girl twins, one “died” and was raised by another family. Boy stayed with mom who became town crazy woman outside town. Girl finds out somehow she’s adopted and goes back to figure everything out, and gets involved with a local man. ♥️♥️
My stumper is a humorous book that was like a travel or field guide for aliens from outer space, illustrated with black and white drawings. The aliens had heads like Easter Island statues. The book was a magazine sized paperback, and had a blue cover. It was published in the mid to late 1970s.
When I was a child, this would have been sometime between 1990-1995, I borrowed a fiction chapter book twice from my local library that I cannot remember the title of. At the time, the book was old, but I was a kid so it may not have been THAT old. I think it may have been written sometime around the 1950s-70s. It was a story about a boy who takes care of a squirrel. I think that there was a red squirrel on the cover, and the title of the book may have been the name of the squirrel but I’m not certain. I think the book had a bittersweet ending with the squirrel going back to live in the wild. I’ve not been able to find it on a google search so perhaps you can help!
I’m looking for a children’s book that I had in the mid 1970’s. It was a hardcover book and I believe it was oversized. The ‘first’ story was about a child (believe it was a girl) spending the day with her mommy. You then flipped the book upside down & over and there was a ‘second’ story about the child spending the day with his/her daddy and they went to the zoo. I remember a picture of them looking in the animal exhibit and the child is holding a balloon and I think they get ice cream. I’m pretty sure it’s people and not animals (i.e. not the Mercer Meyer little critter book).
I’m delighted by this site and have a book that I’d enjoy seeing again. When I was in kindergarten in 1955, my favorite story was of a goose who decides to have a party for her friends. She cleans her house, and cooks and bakes up a storm. But no one shows up! Then she hears her friends chattering outside at the bus stop and learns that she forgot to invite them. They come in and enjoy her feast, so all ends well.
Obviously, this was a long time ago, so I don’t remember the name. Any one have a clue?
This is a Sesame Street book from late 80s/early 90s (possibly mail order but pretty sure sold as a set) where the subject is a birthday block party. The birthday cake is long, snakelike, but rainbow colored, alternating colors where you would slice it. There were also jellybeans.
